The best five bucks you’ll spend?

Ghosts I - IV Album CoverLast night I downloaded the new Nine Inch Nails album “Ghosts” directly from the NIN website. You have several choices of format to choose from, including lossless Apple and FLAK formats for $10.00. For $5.00 you get all 36 tracks in 320kbps DRM Free MP3 format.

Five bucks for 36 tracks! That’s nuts.

I’ve only had a chance to listen to about a quarter of the album so far, so a full review will be coming soon, but so far, this is a good investment in not only good music, but the future of music distribution. See, Trent Reznor is distributing this album himself, with no help from the music industry.

First week sales are in over a million bucks, which I’d have to say is a success.
